. superstorm sandy hit in october. so many still reeling from that still trying to get their heat and power back on, and, again, welcome. we are sitting in the cnn weather center where we are watching the snowstorm move all across the northeast, we're live here in the middle of the night for you continuous updates on conditions, we have a team of reporters all across the region. take a look. susan candiotti in boston for us, gary tuchman in staten island and alison kosik in new york. let's begin in boston. look at these cars. think about getting that snow off that car. 19 inches of snow has already fallen and 70-mile-an-hour wind gusts could whip up snow drifts six or seven feet deep. susan candiotti, let me come back to you for me in boston. how are conditions there? >> reporter: well, the snow is swirling. it is miserable. it is cold. but i have to say it doesn't feel quite as cold as it was, you know, a few hours ago, although when i checked the temperature gauge which you're never quite sure if they're quite right, it's reading about 19 degrees, 20 degrees here. and it makes you remembe
especially those hit so hard from superstorm sandy and now you have this massive snowstorm. before i let you go to bed, we all know you cory booker, hands-on mayor. do you anticipate having to help out yourself if necessary tomorrow? >> yeah. i think we all need to take that attitude. obviously my primary concern is working with my command staff to do what is necessary to get the streets clear. i always go out with a group of folks, with shovels and other supplies. so should we see somebody in need we always try to jump out and help. it's a good spirit that i found in newark in past storms and past weather energies as well as snowstorms that folks are helping each other and i try to do my part, as well to demonstrate this is a time where we all need to be hands on and being assistance. i have a great command staff. most of my senior staff turned in an hour or two ago and they are ready for tomorrow. the city's really working in partnership with county authorities, state authorities and new jersey as proven a lot of resilience, especially coming out of sandy. the storm was brutal and difficul
. this blizzard on the exact same path as superstorm sandy, that could mean more misery for people still trying to recover from that storm. alison kosik is at columbus circle in manhattan. what is new york doing to prepare? >> reporter: right now we certainly are feeling a nice steady flow of snow coming down and not really sticking except for one or two snowballs we're making on the side here. you look out here, everybody's going to work as usual just like a normal bad weather day. everybody knows what's coming later and that's the tricky point. new york city mayor michael bloomberg is concerned about the cleanup because the storm is expected to really hit around rush hour when everybody's trying to get home, that could make it difficult for those salt spreaders and those plows to get through the streets but also extra trains are coming out for those who live on long island, the lirr is adding extra trains to get people home as fast as they can before the big part of the snowstorm hits. carol? >> do you have your flashlight and your toilet paper and your bread? >> reporter: oh, yeah, you know,

region, even for areas damaged by superstorm sandy, we are going to look at the threat for coastal flooding there as well as erosion. that's just another part of the story with those winds. >> and power outages, right? if you have heavy, heavy snow and wind, sometimes those power lines -- i mean, so many of the power lines in the suburbs -- in the cities, they're under the ground. >> remember superstorm sandy. >> that's right. i was calling yesterday trying to find a generator. they're virtually out of them. everybody is trying to scramble. >> whenever you don't want it or you don't have the money. >> thank you, jennifer. appreciate it. >>> 36 minutes past the hour. a possible development overnight in the man hunt for christopher dorner. he's the fired lapd cop who's accused of murdering three people. he's vowed to keep on killing. there is a report that he may have been spotted near the barona indian reservation in lakeside, california. the 33-year-old promised retribution for his 2008 dismissal in a rambling facebook manifesto. his burned-out truck was found at a ski resort area
. >>> thousands of superstorm sandy victims are bracing for the worst all over again. mary snow has been in staten island which is getting hit very, very hard. she's got more on this part of the story. >> reporter: snowstorms should be a time for nick camarata to make money repairing snow blowers but his business was destroyed by sandy and he's working out of a badly damaged home. he can't afford another setback. >> as you can see, i got as far as i could trying to rebuild, you know, and i'm in week -- what are we in? week 15? 15 weeks of living in hell. and under these conditions, i couldn't bear another title surge or water coming into the house and causing any more problems than we already have. we've been through enough. >> reporter: we first met camarato when water ravaged the first floor of his home and refused to leave with his family. he suffers from posttraumatic stress disorder. his biggest struggle right now, he says, his emotions. how big of a setback do you think this storm is even if it doesn't do widespread damage, how big of a setback is it just on your psyche? >> you know, you've
is at risk. half the north polar ice cap has disappeared. look at superstorm sandy here. look at the 60% of the u.s. in drought. last year the hottest year in u.s. history. we have to stop this. we have to arrest it. >> the single biggest reason for the decline of co2 emissions in the united states or the decline in the rate of increase has been the substitution of natural gas and sort of coal. because of fracking, natural gas has become cheap enough that we're replacing coal. in fact, we are now doing better than the european union in terms of meeting targets. i've heard you on the subject and it feels to me like you're still very -- you're on the fence on the issue of fracking. shouldn't you be more fully in favor of it with regulations and with protections because it is almost everywhere replacing coal and that is a big net plus in terms of co2 emissions. >> we have to be careful in measuring the global warming impact of the strategies that we choose. if you look at the latest satellite pictures of north america, there's a new ball of light as large as chicago in rural north dakota.
inches. you multiply them together it's like superstorm sandy, the cold on one side, the warm on the other. one plus one equaled three. that is what we have here. rain moving up the east coast, snow coming across parts of the northern plains. and then the winter storm advisories, warnings, watches, bliz afterward warnings for boston, hartford, providence. i could see new york city between six and 12 inches. yesterday i was thinking probably three, because it was going to be warmer. now it seems colder, this model is 12.8 for new york. then for new york city on the next one here, models are coming in. we have 11.3. that's why we are at the 6 to 12 for the city. look at the numbers east. three feet for boston. >> i only have a few seconds. in 1978 i was looking through some of the data, it looks like $500 million in damage back then, which was a lot. i think over 100 people dead. are we looking at something this lethal? or are we now in a better place, because we can at least forecast a bit better? >> if you are on the highway and it's snowing and you are stuck, you are putting
